Growing: Amy Schumer releases dignified trailer for Netflix stand-up
Staff Reporter | On 14, Mar 2019Reading time: 3 mins
“I’ve gotta be more mature, more grown-up, more dignified.” That’s Amy Schumer in the trailer for her new Netflix stand-up special.
The video, which sees the comic sitting in front of a white background like a corporate ad, promises us that the Trainwreck and I Feel Pretty star is no longer amused by gross-out humour, and that her pregnancy has seen her grow, not just physically but emotionally too. Of course, all of that comes with one big caveat, a caveat that spews forth every few seconds, making it clear that while she might be a bit more adult, she’s still the same person – and still as adult as ever.
Taking morning sickness to a whole new level? Amy Schumer: Growing drops onto Netflix on Tuesday 19th March. Here’s the video:
Amy Schumer: Growing is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.

Trailer: Amy Schumer returns to Netflix for stand-up special

Marriage. Pregnancy. And all of the blissful crap in between. That’s the subject of Amy Schumer’s new stand-up special, Growing.
Heading to Netflix next month, it sees the comedian a bit more grown up, but still the same person. The actress, writer, director and author returned to the stand-up stage in 2017, following her jump from the small screen to the big screen with movies including I Feel Pretty and Trainwreck. Now, she’s heading back to Netflix again for a second special, and a new trailer gives us a glimpse of the material she’s got in store – all served up with the same frank, scathing wit that made her so popular in the first place.
Growing premieres on Netflix on Tuesday 19th March. Here’s the trailer:

27th February 2019
Amy Schumer is returning to Netflix for a new stand-up special.
Schumer, who made the jump from the small screen to the big screen with a string of movies, including I Feel Pretty and Trainwreck, returned to the stand-up stage in 2017. Amy Schumer: The Leather Special was released online in 2017, following a Live at the Apollo special in 2015 and another, Mostly Sex Stuff, in 2012.
“As a comedian, actress, writer, director, producer and best-selling author, Amy Schumer is a boundless threat and a one-of-a-kind talent,” is how Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, described her when her first special for the streaming service was announced. She joined a line-up of big name comics, including Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle, all signed up by the online giant. Now, she’s back for another round, taking to Instagram and Twitter to announce the news.
“It probably seems like I’ve been pregnant for a thousand years to you guys, but I’ve been working really hard,” she revealed. “I’ve taped a special, I filmed it in Chicago for Netflix and I’m really proud of it. It’s called Growing and I think its’s the best special I’ve ever done.”
Amy Schumer: Growing will premiere on Netflix on 19th March.
